Novel Decorating Idea: Frame Wallpaper to Give Splash of Color!

This morning I came across a novel idea I wanted to share.  If you are looking to redo a room in staging your home for sale or just want to have a simple winter project to give a little color and light to a drab area, consider this tip from Southern Living Magazine's Anne Turner Carroll.  Create Do-It-Yourself artwork by framing a colorful piece of wallpaper that you like.  It's such an inexpensive and great tip that you can change up your color frequently!  I am an avid reader of the magazine and highly recommend it.  In the Nov.2009 issue (go get a copy for holdiay recipe ideas too) you'll find this tip plus many others for ways to "Wake Up a Tired Bedroom".Southern Living Magazine Tip Nov.2009

I thought I heard Southern Living was going out of business?  Do you know if this is true?

Cathy, I love it too.  Read a few pages each day.

Kim, I'm not aware of any problems with Southern Living.    However a similar title Southern Accents announced stopping all except their online version.  Maybe you have them confused?

I love this a few of our stagings when we couldn't find that just right wall piece...we have framed large pieces of scrapbook paper...(from Archiver"s)....there are so many cool papers out there as well that really look great framed up.

I did use this trick. It is cheap and fast. I even had redesign projects where waiting to find the right piece, we did the wall paper or scrapbooking frames. Here is one example:Scrapbook paper Art

Scrapbook paper, wrapping paper, and even fabric works really well too!  We have to use whatever we have on hand to get the job done these days!
